The Northern Pacific on Monday
duced freight rates to Portland, Oregon
The rates have been 60 cents per 100
pounds, regardless of classification. These
are now reduced to one-half of the min
imum rates which are 60 cents from St
Paul anti 65 from Chicago. This will al
so involve a reduction to interior points.
Independent: Col. A. L.Stokes,genen
agent of the Northern Pacific, aunounce
that (taking effect on May 1) the rate on
fifth class freight—carload lots—between
eastern terminals of the road and common
points in Montana, such a» Helena, Garri
son and Butte, will be $1.00 per hundred
pounds, a reduction of ten cents from
former rates and a difference of 15 cents
per hundred from the same class of goods
in less than carload lots.
The meeting of the International Broth
erhood of Locomotive Engineers held at
Hartford, Conn., on tin; 25th, was attended
by over eight hundred engineers. What
was done at the meeting could not 1
learned. Chief Vrthur when approached
was noncommittal concerning the attitude
of the brotherhood toward the strike in
the Southwest. It is learned on good
thority that the assemblage passed a \
sustaining Chief Arthur's course.
The River Press says that J. J. Ilill
the "Ethiopian in the woodpile" win
headed off the Canadian Pacific branch to
Benton. His relations with the Canadian
Pacific people were friendly and he went
to them and represented that the Mauito
ba would soon reach Fort Assinnaboine
from which point a lateral line would be
stretched out only 75 miles to the Cana
dian road. Such arguments prevailed and
the Canadians put a quietus on the Galt
road to Benton.

ter their interests were the only bidders
and the whole system, excepting the St.
Joseph & St. Louis branch, was purchased
by them. W. F. Nesbitt, its president,
purchased the latter road for $1.
StraKge CaUln Disease.
Jeffersen County Sentinel: Edwarc
Ryan gives information that the stockmen
in his neighborhood arc losing many
calves from some unknown cause. The
disease that afflicts them is severe in the
extreme. There seems to be but little
chance of recovery after they once take
it. Wm. Ryan has lost several, Con Clark
a few r , and in fact nearly all have suffered
more or less. One strange fact connected
with this strange disease is that the moth
er will stay around and administer all the
help and sympathy possible for the ailin
offspring, but after the little thing is dead
the mother leaves it perfectly unconcern
ed and returns no more. The disease
should be investigated by veterinary sur
gcons, as it is becoming a serious matter
to our stockmen.
Montana Improvement Company's Timber
New Northwest : We stated a week or
two ago that the United States timber
suits against the Montana Improvement
company and Northern Pacific Railroad
company would probably go over at this
term of court on account of there being
no government funds available for court
expenses. Since then U. S. Marshal Kel
ley has had government funds placed to
his credit for the purpose, and the suits
will doubtless come to issue. It is prob
able both prosecution and defendants will
be presented by able counsel, and that
there will be an array of legal talent in
the case that has not been excelled, if
equaled, in Montana. This is in some re
spects a "test case" for the government,
and it is in all respects an important case
for the defendants. It is not likely to be
overlooked by either.
Grand ,Tury Peremptorily CTiallensed.
When the district court for Choteau
county convened on Wednesday of last
week quite a commotion was caused by the
action of Attorney-General Hunt in per
emptorily challenging the entire grand
jury and demanding that a special venire j the
bc issued for a new jury. The reasou for !
this movement on the part of the attoincy
general \\as the fact that J. M. Arnoux, a
member of the board of county commis
sioners, was under arrest for forgery,
awaiting the action of the grand jury, and
as a part of the commissioners' duty is to
summon a grand jury, it was claimed that
they would not lie liable to summon men
to serve as jurymen who would indict one
o' their number. Judge Wade said it
was the first case of the kind that had
ever come under his notice, though he had
heard of such. The grand jury was a
part of the court, and no grand jury that
had been drawn by a tainted hand could
serve in the court. It had been summon
ed by three men, one of whom was de
pendent upon its action. The court there
fore discharged the jury from further at
tendance and ordered the issue of a special
venire for a new grand jury. The offense
which constituted the charge of forgery
against Aïnoux was the raising of the
mileage in a justice's certificate which
had been issued to himself and wife as
witnesses which, as one ot the commis
sioners, he afterwards audited and allowed
Stolen Stock Recovered.
Sheriff Sullivan of Butte has recovered
at Atlantic City, Wyoming, thirteen of the
sixty head of work cattle stolen from Sil
ver Bow county in July last. The cattle
were in possession of a butcher named
Ricketts, who threatens to replevin the
cattle and swear out a warrant against the
sheriff on the charge of cattle stealing.
Sheriff Sullivan, however, claims to have
proof that Ricketts was in communication
with the men who stole the cattle, and in
duced them to bring the stock to him at
Atlantic. He will procure the necessary
requisition papers, arrest Ricketts as a re
ceiver of stolen goods and take him to
Butte for trial.
llound-Up Meetings at Billings.
The Yellowstone round-up association
held a meeting at Billings on the 22d to
make arrangements for the spring round
up. It was decided to have cash or good
security to accompany any successful
bids for all mavericks sold on the range,
before they are branded, and to send rep
resentatives on the Clarks Fork and
Briggs & Ellis round-up on the south
side of the YYdlowstone river, and Shields
river round-up on the north side, to brand
calves and work cattle back to range,
working with the Musselshell association
li possible. It was also decided that the
Yellowstone round-up would not cut into
ghboriug districts as already laid out
by the. territorial association.
The Musselshell round-up association
also held a meeting at Billings ou the
A Big Ditch.
At Eagle Rock, Idaho, the McLean
Gold Mining company is making fine
progress with its large canal. There
are at present 425 men employed on the
enterprise. The length of the ditch
when eompleted will be 16 miles, and
it will be 25 l'eet wide on top and 20 feet
o:i the bottom, and 6 feet deep. For
live miles it is cut through solid rock,
and over 100 men are now constantly
employed in blasting. The water will
be used for placer mining, and also for
irrigating purposes. It is expected it
will give employment to 1,500 men when
completed. It will make Eagle Rock
boom, and the people there are erecting
quite a number of business places in
anticipation of the good times coming.
Tramps Attack a Train.
Anaconda Review: Tuesday night,
when the wood train—Bumkratz, con
ductor—was about leaving Silver Bow,
the train was nearly captured by tramps.
They had taken possession of one car
nil were determined to ride to Anacon
da or Deer Lodge. The brakemen, two
in number, began to dislodge them and
they came at them from all directions,
till there were twelve tramps, one fel
low coming from under the car, where
he was riding on a brake beam, with a
club, and they would speedily have
done up" the brakemen if help had
not arrived from the depot in person of
the clerk, transfer man, the conductor
and several other parties. When the
tramps found that they were overmatch
ed they retired a short distance and be
gan throwing chunks of coal and rock.
The conductor was hit a couple of times
but not hurt. »Several shots were fired,but
nobody was hit. This is the boldest at
tempt at trying to force a train to carry
tramps in the territory that we have
heard of. Montana wants no such des
perate characters. The officers should
keep a sharp lookout for them.
Only Hair Alive.
There are hosts of men and
ho, to coin a phrase, are only half alive.
That is to sav, they have seldom if ever
any appetite, are nervous, weak, fidgetty
and troubled by numberless small pains
and aches. In the presence of vigorous,
exhuberant vitality they seem mere pig
mies. Such persons are fond of frequent
ly dosing themselves, swallowing in the
course of the year enough drugs to stock
an apothecary shop of average dimensions.
This, of course, defeats instead of further
ing the end in view, viz.: the recovery of
health and vigor. Were they to seek it
from an unfailing source of vitality, Hos
tetter's Stomach Bitters, how different
would be their case. Then vigor wold
return to their debilitated frames, the
glow of health to their wan cheeks,«their
trembling uncertain gait would grow firm
and elastic, appetite, that grandest of all
sauces, would give a relish for the daily
food, were it ever so coarse, and refresh
ing sleep would crown the tasks of the
